'Good Night, And Good Luck'

A Special Farewell Video Message to Mainstream Media and the Public

Okay, folks. I'm going to be very brief. I thank those of you that took the time to log on and read or watch many of the breaking and original news stories, special features, and exclusive interviews that were posted. I also thank those that contributed to this site during its four year run. Whether you gave a monetary donation or moral support, I will always be grateful. You're a crucial reason why the site was able to last for as long as it did. 

I would like the video that has been posted to serve as a reminder -- to the American media and the public -- of what good, true journalism is really all about. It's from the critically acclaimed film "Good Night, and Good Luck", and the speech given by the lead character, Edward R. Murrow, whom I consider one of my journalism mentors, is just as relevant today as it was in the late 1950's. 

Let us not forget the true nature of journalism and the mission of a journalist, which, in its most unvarnished form, is to fearlessly shine the spotlight of truth upon corruption, deceit...and injustice. This is the essence of journalism. 

Again, I thank my supporters and wish all of you a very Happy New Year. 

This is "The G-Man".....signing off.
